Now we get a revolving door in the 4th line wing.
Phoenix threw torres a bunch of money and a longer term deal than the canucks couldve matched. Thats no fault on MG. i see MGs biggest failure not being able to re-sign ehrhoff and thinking edler would only get better. Buffalo gave ehrhoff 40 million over 10 years, only 4m cap hit. I would like to believe he wouldve agreed to a 6 year 30m contract. So ballard at 4.2 for 4ish years and losing a first round draftee as well as a later date first round pick or ehrhoff at 5? Ehrhoff being a top 2 pmd or ballard a top 4 panther and 5/6 canuck. Only saving grace was getting hamhuis, could you imagine having ballard in the top 4 in vancouver?
